Alstor Product Range

The Alstor mini forwarder, is an eight wheel drive machine, designed and built in Sweden to reach difficult & sensitive areas of forestry. There are many load concepts, making the Alstor a very versatile machine for many applications. The constant 8 wheel drive makes the Alstor excellent in challenging and steep terrain and with a low ground pressure and tracks available, it is very well suited to wet sites. Transportation is easy as it can be towed on a trailer behind a suitable 4x4.

Home Forestry llp was the first company in the UK to buy an Alstor 8x8 miniforwarder back in 1998. We carried out the Forestry commission TDB trials and many open workshops. In 1999 we were given the UK and Ireland dealership for Alstor and ever since that time we have worked closely with Alstor to help develop and promote the design and options available. We actively contract and use the Alstor and have a wide knowledge of the design and operational use. We beleive strongly in the Alstor and its concept and the manufacturers In Sweden. The capabilities, outputs and low impact make these small machines perfect for the UK forest. From light thinnings to clear-fell.

Alstor 850

A New hydrostatic combi machine.

The New Alstor 850 continues the legend from the very successful 840 Pro. The  Alstor 850 is a true hydrostatic mini-forwarder with many improvements in design. The cabin has been completely redesigned to give the operator an improved work environment and higher levels of comfort. The cab can be tilted over for service access and is ROPS, FOPS & OPS compliant.

 

The Alstor 850 is equipped as standard with the Parker hydraulic valve allowing 5 different operators to set all the hydraulic controls of the 850  to their speed of function preference. The Alstor 850 comes as standard with the Palms 5.0m crane and can be upgraded to the 5.4m if required. The Astor 850 can run a Tapio 160 stroke harvester head for first thinning's, which can produce between 40-80 trees per hour depending on crop size. Programmable lengths can be pre- set to allow the operator to cut up to 10 different lengths depending on the requirements.

 

The optional variable hydraulic pump enables the crane to function at excellent speed, with no delay. The braking system on the new Alstor 850 is now an automatic hydraulic brake.

Alstor 822

A brand new Alstor -Completely redesigned for those who demand the best!

Now comes the successor to our sales success Alstor 821. Our brand new machine Alstor 822. A Swedish-made machine means that you get a forest machine with very good reliability and quality. The machine is built in high-strength steel with a fully protected and centred prop-shaft center joint. The machine's articulated steering, high ground clearance and eight-wheel drive mean that you can always take the shortest route in the forest and thus achieve high capacity, efficiency and not least comfort. The machine can be easily transported on a regular car trailer and in combination with a high transport speed, it simplifies accessibility to the land.

Alstor 822 has a completely new front chassis where the removable belly plate creates very good service friendliness. Driver ergonomics have been optimized with expanded storage, flat floors, improved driving position and better access in and out of the machine on both sides. Traction is greatly improved with a 24 hp Yanmar engine. The new variator provides better control and power in difficult and advanced terrain. The new simplified driveline provides better braking ability and creates better service friendliness and reliability. Alstor 822 now also has electrically lockable differential gears, which gives even better flexibility and maneuverability and gives even less impression in forests and land. The newly developed timber nest has stronger banks and a design that facilitates loading. The new design also makes it easier to adapt to Alstor's different load concepts and special adaptations.
